Germany is favoured by our players to win their fourth World Cup title: 11 players have picked Germany to win while 5 have chosen Argentina to win their third championship.

While the Tiebreaker 3rd Place Game is unlikely going to be required to break a tie, we are split on which team will atone for their heartbreak in the semi-finals.

Enjoy the games, and good luck!
